Dungarvan Alternative Health Clinic was founded in 1999 by Orla Casey, an aromatherapist and hypnotherapist, and Kevin Power, a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
It was the first clinic of its kind in Dungarvan, and, indeed, in Co. Waterford, as it was specifically resored and redesigned as a modern clinic of alternative and complementary medicine.
Kevin and Orla's vision was to establish a centre of healing for the community, where many different therapies would be practised to the highest standards by fully qualified professional therapists in a healing environment. This vision soon became a reality, and the clinic's reputation for the highest professional standards has gone from strength to strength over the years.
The building itself, dating back to at least the mid 1870s, has been sensitively restored, and stands as a symbol of the continuity of tradition and community which is so important in any healing environment.
